Capturing Prayer In The Soul And The Spirit Part 2

2451 Capturing Prayer In The Soul And The Spirit Part 2

Friday July  23, 2021/ Capturing Prayer In The Soul And The Spirit Part 2/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

1. We must pray always
2. We must pay close attention all day to our feelings, thoughts, and hearts and align them constantly to God’s will and word.
3. When we are able to keep our minds and thoughts still and under God’s control and when we yield to the Holy Spirit in prayer, we get to also pray for things beyond our thoughts, knowledge, circumstance, personal benefits etc. we become true co-laborers in prayers with the Spirit of grace and supplications.
This is a highly beneficial full-time job.
4. Rewarding to us, others, and circumstances, hence glorifying God. It’s a win-win situation.

Key scriptures:

2 Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:6-9, Luke 18:1, 7,8, Ephesians 6:18

2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ

Philippians 4:6-9
6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Luke 18:1,7,8
1.And He spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint,
7 And shall not God avenge His own elect, who cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them?
8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?”

Prayers for restoration to the fellowship of those affected by the online church

Key scriptures:

Phil 3:10
ASV “that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed unto his death”

1 A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. 2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. 3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. 4 Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. 6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. 7 Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings, I will rejoice. 8 My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me

what time is it

2394 What Time Is It

Wednesday May 5, 2021/What Time Is It./Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

1.We need to know what time it is in our lives at every point.

2. Not the Chronological time but time in terms of tasks, assignment, and purpose.

3. One thing is certain? We’ve run out of time to squander on miscellaneous, unnecessary, and unimportant tasks.
4. We don’t have enough time to do all the things we desire to do or are capable of doing much less sin.
5. In order to know what time it really is at any instant i.e what we should or should not be doing, we need Wisdom, we need alertness, awareness, communion, and responsiveness to the Holy Spirit.

6. Let us shape up!! We don’t have time for excesses.

7. The time  left is to do what pleases God, what we are assigned to do and to help others do the same!

8. Let us shape up!! We don’t have time for excesses. The time left is to do what pleases God, what we are assigned to do and to help others do the same!

Key scriptures:

1 Peter 4:3

AMP: For the time already past is [more than] enough for doing what the [unsaved] Gentiles like to do—living [unrestrained as you have done] in a course of [shameless] sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties, and wanton idolatries.
ERV: In the past you wasted too much time doing what those who don’t know God like to do. You were living immoral lives, doing the evil things you wanted to do. You were always getting drunk, having wild drinking parties, and doing shameful things in your worship of idols.

Ephesians 4:17
So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking

Ephesians 5:16
AMP “making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil”
CEV “These are evil times, so make every minute count”
Ephesians 5:16-18
Phillips
Live life, then, with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning and purpose of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the difficulties of these days. Don’t be vague but firmly grasp what you know to be the will of God. Don’t get your stimulus from wine (for there is always the danger of excessive drinking), but let the Spirit stimulate your souls.

MSG
Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ. Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light! So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!

Seeking To Find

2389 Seeking To Find

Wednesday April 28, 2021/ Seeking To Find/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

1. Seeking and discovering God should be a tireless and unending vocation
2. A true Seeker does not set a time limit or boundaries.

3. A true seeker seeks until the desire is found.

4. A seeker has one resolve: to find no matter what.

5. When you resolve to seek until you find something, it does not take long to find it.

Key scriptures:

 

Jeremiah 29:13
“And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart”

 

Genesis 29:30
“And Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.”

 

John 4:23-24 KJV
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Maintaining a firm grip as a seeker

2380 Maintaining A Firm Grip As A Seeker.

Wednesday April 14, 2021/ Maintaining A Firm Grip As A Seeker/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

1. Wedding, New job, new home, new opportunity, long-awaited dream…. sound familiar?
Which is more important?
The event or the thereafter?
2. We shouldn’t have to choose, both are important.
3. What we do after determines if the event was really worth it and if we will enjoy the fullness and essence.
4. Getting something is important, keeping it new, fresh and relevant is also important and completes the package.
Now that seekers convention is over, we must review, engage and practice what we obtained, we must keep seeking and stay in the flow.

Key Scriptures:

Hebrews 2:1 “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip”
Hebrews 11:6
“and apart from faith it is impossible to please well, for it behoveth him who is coming to God to believe that He is, and to those seeking Him He becometh a rewarder” YLT
Deuteronomy 4:9
Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren

Expectation, Consecration, Visitation and Communion With God.

2352 Expectation, Consecration, Visitation and Communion With God.

Wednesday March 3, 2021/Expectation, Consecration, Visitation, And Communion with God/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

1. Our Pastor has given us a charge to pray and fast during our 3 day Holy Ghost Meetings. The aim is consecration into God. We need to align, obey and participate with a willing and expectant heart.
2. God’s visitation is always certain where there is an expectation and appropriate preparation.
We also see this in
Joshua 3:5  where Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.”
3. Also in 1 John 3:3, we see that everyone who has the hope and expectation of His appearing automatically purifies himself.
4. Let us prepare and consecrate ourselves with great expectations and a decision to maintain close communion with God beyond these 3 days.
5. Are you expecting anything tonight? What are you expecting? Let our obedience, actions, and preparations reveal our expectations and we will not be disappointed.
(More scriptures:
1 John 3:2-3 2 & Proverbs 23:17-18)

Key scriptures:

*Exodus 19:10-11*
10The LORD also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and have them wash their garments; 11and have them ready for the third day, for on the third day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.
*Genesis 35:1-3*
1Then God said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel and dwell there; and make an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you fled from the face of Esau your brother.”
2And Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Put away the foreign gods that are among you, purify yourselves, and change your garments. 3Then let us arise and go up to Bethel; and I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me in the way which I have gone.”

healed hearts and fulfilled desires

2343 Healed Hearts And Fulfilled Desires

Wednesday February 17, 2021/ Healed Hearts And Fulfilled Desires/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

Healed Hearts The emotional well-being of God’s children comes as the 2nd on the Ministry agenda of Jesus. It comes right after salvation.
God wants His people healed, for they do well or prosper in other areas as much their soul is well or prospers.
Fulfilled Dreams and Desires
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, yet the Lord wants to fulfill our desires. He’s asked us many times to present our desires to Him in prayers. He’s asked us to keep asking, seeking, and knocking until we get, find and enter in. He also said we should ask until our joy is full.
Prayers:
1. Healing of hearts
2. Uncovering, rediscovery, and fulfilling of all desires: old, new, suppressed, and forgotten
3. That we may be concerned also about the desires of others, before and after our desires are realized. (Amen)

Key scriptures:

Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Genesis 18:12 “Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?”

lighted eyes and tender hearts

2337 Lighted Eyes And Tender Hearts.

Tuesday February 9, 2021/ Lighted Eyes And Tender Hearts/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

In this prayer session, we will be focusing on our eyes and hearts.
That our eyes be lighted so we can see as we ought so we can act promptly and appropriately. That our hearts and of those that we deal with will be yielded, touched, tenderized, and influenced by God.
As our eyes are lit we will see both opportunities and hindrances.
As our hearts are tender we will hear God clearly and also deal tenderly with others. This will cause us to receive a harvest of tenderness and favor from people.
Shall we pray?
*More scriptures *
*John 8:9*
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
*Proverbs 21:1*
The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he guides it wherever he pleases.

Key scriptures:

*Ephesians 1:17-18* 17 “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people”
*Ezekiel 11:19*
19 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh

Alligning With & Connecting To The Spirit Of The House

2328 Aligning With And Connecting To The Spirit Of The House

Wednesday January 27, 2021/ Aligning With And Connecting To The Spirit Of The House/ Pastor Fola Babatunde

Summary:

133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore
1 Peter 1: 1-5
2 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow [a]thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
The Chosen Stone and His Chosen People
4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
We must purpose in our hearts to always align and cooperate with the vision and Spirit of our God ordained alliances: Church, Marriage, and such like.
We must purge ourselves in this season of all phoniness and falsehood both personal and in our relationship with each other.
If we do these 2  things, we will experience amazing and unprecedented encounters both personally and corporately.
Start, continue or intensify your engagement in this fast and other CT projects.

 Key scripture:

Psalm 133
